SmartStart is an industry leading employment screening company. We offer employers worldwide access to a variety of employment screening services including criminal background checks, employment history verifications, and education verifications, and clinical services, such as breath alcohol test, physicals, titers, vaccines, and more.

Please follow the directions closely. Upon completion, you will be able to immediately access your researcher portal and begin conducting research as orders are received. You will not get paid until the contractor agreement is signed and returned, your identification documents are received, and you send in your bank details to receive payments.

We greatly appreciate your registration and we are excited to work with you. If you have any questions or experience difficulties in the process, please contact William Wadsworth at 813.377.4343 ext 7016 or or Justin Raprager at, ext 7101.

What will you be doing?

You will be conducting verification of employment history and degree information on potential applicants. You will also be interviewing their references to determine their character.

When will you be doing it?

There are no volume guarantees. You might receive 1 or even no orders in a month and the next month you could get 50. You have to make calls during the operating hours of the establishments you are calling but you can do it whenever you have the time.

Orders should be completed within 48 to 72 business hours. We understand that sometimes it may take longer to get in-touch with the people you call.

  • You MUST be computer proficient
  • Own a computer
  • Have internet access
  • Be able to type quickly while you record most of what a person says while questioning them.
  • You MUST be able to have the desire to do more than give up if a person says the information is not available. You must ask every question you can to determine if you can obtain the information we desire.
  • You will be paid $10 for every verification you COMPLETE.

What about the cost of the calls?

$10 per verification is extremely good but to make it better, SmartStart will give you access to a internet phone system that you can make calls to any country and we will pay the bill. Spend 5 to 15 minutes on each order and make $40 to $120 per hour. All you need is a computer, headset, and high speed internet.

Can I hold another job?

Yes. You can do this job on the side and still make very good money. Just be aware that each order has to be completed as soon as possible with a target of no more that 3 days. But, because each verification only takes a few minutes, you will have plenty of time to pursue other interests if you desire.
